The aim is to train young people to be able to judge at Youth Olympics, World Archery Youth Championships, World University championships etc. We are pleased to announce that one of our members Katherine Frusher will be attending the programme. We wish her good luck.
Pass it On Course
This excellent Archery GB 1 day course is being hosted by ourselves at Balcarras School on Sunday February 22nd. It is aimed at helping coaches and volunteers and therefore clubs to work more effectively with those with disabilities.
The programme will still allow the club to meet on the Sunday morning and for the Inclusion Club to take place. Thanks to Dave Sandles (Pictured below) for organising this.
There are a few places left, if anyone who is already or aspires to become a coach would like to attend then please let us know.
